South Carolina Student Loans are given by a non-profit lender endorsed by the state of South Carolina. Loans are based on your credit history. When you've missed payments and your South Carolina Student Loan is in default, make arrangements to get the loan out of default as soon as you can. A defaulted loan is a negative on your credit history and may make it difficult for you to get other loans. South Carolina Student Loans offers the Palmetto Assistance Loan for students who need additional aid and the South Carolina Teachers Loan for future educators.
